Our Services

IPvocate Africa is a boutique firm focusing exclusively on the protection, management, and enforcement of IP rights in Africa.  Our IP services reach from consultation, searching, filing, prosecuting, renewing, filing oppositions to defending IP rights, including coordinating anti-counterfeiting raids, customs enforcement of IP rights, civil or criminal enforcement actions, conducting domain name disputes, etc.

Over the years, we have successfully assisted clients, including multinationals from Europe and North America in their dealings in Africa. Our expansion in sports law, film and entertainment law, commercial law and online gambling is governed by the same ethos that led to the creation of our firm: to offer high-quality service in Africa by trained and experienced lawyers.

One Stop Solution for Managing your IP in Africa

Many multinational companies and large law firms view Africa from a regional perspective and require IP protection in several African key jurisdictions simultaneously. IPvocate Africa is able to offer a one stop shop solution for IP protection in Africa. We streamline the process for our clients, allowing a single point of contact. This is why our clients use our services on a regional basis to handle their work across Africa. We are privileged to accompany the initial stages of client’s projects and inventions as they unfold in Africa. We assist clients in defending their assets and their markets against unfair competitors, imitators and counterfeiters throughout Africa. The African continent is one of the most thriving and dynamic places in the world, but also bears a lot of challenges.

Our Philosophy

Just Africa – we do not pretend to cover the world. Instead we focus on Africa
